PREFACE. 


The  Commissariot  of  Orknty  and  Shetland  comprised  the  counties  of  the 
same.  The  Record,  of  which  the  greater  part  is  now  amissing,  probably 
in  the  hands  of  private  individuals,  commences  in  1661  and  ends,  in  so  far 
as  Shetland  is  concerned,  in  1649,  and  as  regards  Orkney  in  1684.  The 
Testaments  of  the  different  islands  are  recorded  in  groups,  according  as 
the  Commissary  perambulated  the  same,  holding  his  courts  throughout  the 
different  parishes.  For  the  sake  of  convenience,  those  of  Shetland  have 
been  arranged  in  a  separate  Index  from  Orkney.  The  lists  show  in  a 
marked  manner  how,  by  the  seventeenth  century,  names  in  Orkney  had 
departed  from  the  Norwegian  system  of  patronymics  in  favour  of  those  of 
places,  while  in  Shetland  the  practice,  which  can  hardly  even  yet  be  said  to 
be  extinct,  of  callirg  the  son  from  his  father's  christian  name,  was  in  full 
force,  thus  the  son  of  William  Magnusson  of  Buness  becomes  Henry 
Williamson  of  Buness,  and  in  his  turn  his  son  is  Magnus  Henryson  or 
Henderson. 

The  Register  of  Testaments  is  contained  in  eleven  volumes,  and  covers 
the  following  periods  :— 

1.  161 1  to  1 2th  March  1 61 2  and 
30th  December  1618  to  26th  February  1628. 

2.  2ist  August  1612  to    4th  October  161 5. 

3.  7th  March  1628  to     7th  July  1638. 

4.  20th  July  1638  to  22nd  August  1662. 

5.  7th  May  1648  to  28th  August  1649. 

6.  28th  June  1656  to  20th  August  1659. 

7.  2nd  December  1663      to  20th  November  1666  and 

2nd  December  1663  to  i8th  December  1666. 

8.  20th  November  1666     to  22nd  June  1671. 

9.  nth  January  16S1  to     6th  August  1684. 

10.  15th  April  1663  to    2nd  December  1663. 

11.  1679  1683. 

Volume  ten,  which  was  transmitted  to  the  Register  House  in  1886,  by 
the  representatives  of  the  late  Peter  Sinclair  Heddell,  writer,  Kirkwall, 
contains,  besides  Testaments,  seventeen  pages  of  notarial  instruments 
1 65  7-1 659,  and  a  disposition  by  Lady  Halcro,  dated  May  1667. 

Volume  eleven  transmitted  in  1902,  by  Mr.  George  Traill  of  Holland, 
contains  only  an  abstract  of  the  Inventory. 

In  addition  to  the  above  Register,  there  is  a  fragment  containing 
Decreets,  29th  March  1648  to  24th  November  1659,  and  25th  November 
1663  to  29th  July  1668.
